It seems only fitting during this fourth of July holiday season that I take a few moments to pay my respects to the recently departed.  Another part of American freedom that too many people have taken for granted, usually only talking about it during patriotic holidays such as the fourth of July, has died.

The victim however did not simply die of old age or other natural causes.  No, this is a clear case of premeditated murder, committed in the coldest of blood.

Worse yet, the killers remain at large and even though it’s known who they are, nothing will be done to them.  They will not be arrested, tried, or convicted for this most heinous crime.

I am talking about the recent decision handed down by the US Supreme Court that upheld the provision in the obamacare law that requires all US citizens to buy health insurance or pay a tax penalty.

It’s true that there’s a lot of people putting their hopes on Romney getting elected because they are sure that he will act to get rid of that requirement.  What most people don’t seem to understand however is that the obamacare law in general and the requirement to buy health insurance in particular are almost insignificant in comparison to the precedent that has been set by this decision.

It means that should the government choose to do so, it can require that all Americans buy a new house, a new car, a new television or anything else.  All they’d need to do is declare that the action is good for individuals and / or the economy.

It means that such a requirement will be accompanied by a tax (translation “hefty penalty”) on everyone that does not comply with the edict from on high.

Of course, the many people who cannot effort to make the required purchase and further cannot afford to pay the penalty tax for not doing so are, as the saying goes, “up shit creek without a paddle”.

These unfortunates will no doubt be subject to additional penalties of ever increasing severity.  I have no doubt that this will eventually lead to tens of thousands being jailed because they simply didn’t have the money to comply with a governmental order to buy something.

This is perhaps the single most dangerous precedent that has yet been set in American law.  Not only because of what it permits the government to do in the name of “the public good” but also because the only way to reverse this travesty is for the Supreme Court to re-hear the case and agree to nullify it’s earlier decision.

As you can imagine, the possibility of that happening is essentially nil.

So when you complain someday that you cannot afford or do not want something that the government has decreed that you must buy, remember that this started with obamacare and if you voted for him and approved of the obamacare law then you can look in the mirror and realize that you helped bring this to pass.

When that realization sinks all the way in you are hereby invited to spend the rest of your life on your knees apologizing to the rest of us who wanted no part of obama OR his health care package.

WE knew it was wrong to elect him.

WE knew his healthcare law was the wrong way to go.

WE tried and tried to tell the rest of you but you didn’t listen.

I hope you’re satisfied.

As far as *I* am concerned, you are all accessories to murder.
